I created this sign for my pencil sharpener to address the problem of students getting up to sharpen pencils that were already sharp! After getting a new electric sharpener for my room, I found that students were sharpening pencils that didn't need to be sharpened just to use the new machine. This simple sign lets students know in a straightforward (and some what comical) way when it is okay to sharpen (or switch out) a pencil. Enjoy!
